Check the sound drivers in device manager do not have yellow exclamation mark against them.

If they do then right click uninstall and reinstall the drivers.

What sound devie is he using? AC97? sound blaster?

Has he put the jack leads in the right coloured ports?? If so, ask him to swoop them round.

I have a pair of headphones with mic on, that if I plug into the right coloured ports, then I don't get any sound through the headphones. I have to start swooping the jack's about.
